Circuit Board Cities

The Challenge

In the age of digital transformation: computer mainboards photographed and transformed into abstract electronic cities via Google Maps. This art project features neighborhoods from cities such as Barcelona, Dubai, Sun City and Fort Meyers transformed into circuit board cities.

Stadtansichten in Google Maps, die als Vorlage dienen

Screenshots of some cities from Google Maps served as a template for the photography
and subsequent image processing. Suitable scenarios have been researched for this.

Afterwards, detailed images of various mainboards were taken with the help of a macro lens.
The individual images were then combined to form a city pattern.
